UA is the flagship university in the state. UAB and UAH are not. There is no reason to tack on the "T" because everyone knows if you say University of Alabama you aren't talking about an engineering school in Huntsville or a medical school in Birmingham.It is UAT ( we are lucky its really just Bama) but Just like uT at knoxville is UTK
What's wrong with that.
not ashamed the campus is at Tuscaloosa
And again, the main group that uses UAT happen to be Auburnites in an effort to diminish the fact that the flagship school of the state is in Tuscaloosa.
Hell, I'd bet you'd lose 75% of the CFB fan base if you used UAT in a conversation. They'd have no idea and would like think something along the lines of University of Arlington in Texas.
